It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Parkland teen David Hogg and not only is he still around pushing a gun control agenda, he’s still getting schooled over his limited grasp on issues.
Hogg was being interviewed on the ABC daytime syndicated talk show “Windy City Live” in Chicago when he said that gun control should’ve been dealt with “centuries ago.”
Host/admirer Ryan Chiaverini asked Hogg “how have you had the courage to do what you’re doing.”
“We have to develop this courage when our political leaders refuse to have it,” Hogg replied. “When politician say, now is not the time to talk about this, they were right, the time to talk about this was decades and centuries ago.”
The remark was met with a bone-crushing response from Townhall columnist Katie Pavlich: “It was: July 4, 1776.”
It was: July 4, 1776 🇺🇸 https://t.co/9kTsoajAUM

Others added specifics to Pavlich’s observation, which is a general assessment of the birth of our constitutional rights.
And specifically on December 15, 1791 when the Bill of Rights were adopted, including the 2nd Amendment.

Being a member of a generation more likely to condemn the Founding Fathers than to revere them based on what’s being taught in the classroom, it’s not surprising that Hogg wouldn’t understand this.
Here’s a sampling of other responses from social media users willing to contribute to the recent high school graduate’s education.

The continued exploitation of this kid is disgusting. https://t.co/qX400eRpKS

#Hoggwash is a prime example of what happens when our youth just sits in a chair taking up space at school. America's history is a wonderful thing. Being able to know what you're talking about is even better

These people are so uninformed and unlearned. Like, what is the Constitution?
It was addressed decades and centuries ago.
Read it, if you know how? https://t.co/ZxJxjYJWdS

Our Constitution addresses it quite clearly. https://t.co/eeua4cLee6

😂 It was, kid. It’s called the Second Amendment. Study some history.

I didn’t think it was possible, but this kid gets dumber every time he opens his mouth

@davidhogg111 I’m sure that the king of England would have agreed with you wholeheartedly
